Join us in the beautiful surroundings of Ruskin Land, the Wyre Forest, to strengthen your relationship with the natural world through art. 

Immerse yourself in the forest environment and be inspired by all it has to offer to create your own individual pieces of artwork.  Upon arrival you will have the choice of a drawing or painting art pack, you can then lose yourself in the art of creating at one of our socially distanced judging or critiques just see where nature leads you.  Art stations will include:

  • Close up - Look more closely at natural objects and record their beauty on paper.
  • Wildlife - Investigate the wildlife that visits St Georges Farm.
  • Landscape - Observe and record the surrounding landscape including the forest, orchard and meadow.
  • Other activities will include leaf rubbing and leaf printing.

We would like to create a scrapbook of the wildlife and landscape of Ruskin Land from its mini-beasts and birds to its trees and views.  Help us document the wonderful diversity of wildlife the Wyre Forest has to offer by adding one of your creations to the scrapbook. We will be offering morning and afternoon two-hour time slots.
